Career progression for "comedians"
1. Get noticed
2. Repeat same old stuff ad nauseum
3. Run out of material
4. Appear on panel shows hosted by other former "comedians"
5. Appear on late night topical programmes
6. Get 'bit-part' in low budget movies
7. Offer opinions on anything and everything to any TV station that will pay/listen
8. Host a quiz programme
9. Do I'm a celebrity get me out....."
10. Become a politician
Then the comedy REALLY starts Whistle No Longer the owner of a 2013MY Fuji White GS

"Fiat Lux" a philosophy not a car

Well I don't mind the English apart from the Six Nations.

Bit hypocritical but I hate Al Murray Laughing If it wasn't so bad it'd be funny.

Being English but living in Wales (Cardiff) the only time it is of any importance is when the two nations compete at a sprting event. Rugby Union being the prime example, otherwise no problem whatsoever. There are nice people from both sides of Offa's Dyke.

Preferred him when he did "Al Murray's Road to Berlin" as he's a totally different person when he's talking about military history, something he's extremely educated in.
I used to despise him as "Pub Landlord" and used to switch him off immediately - but that's probably more to do with my dislike of "loud mouthed cockney geezers".
However, watching him as "Pub Landlord" now, ( only after watching "......Road to Berlin" and realising he was actually a top bloke), the way he mixes his knowledge of history with humour is brilliant.
However, "Why does..." tries hard to do the same, but fails miserably as it just cannot capture the same vibe as live stand up.

But do you see much of the FL2 in action? Not keen on Al Murray but he has his moments.
